Stilettos and Diapers: Have corks, will decorate.

10.20.2011

Have corks, will decorate.

We started collecting wine corks when we lived in San Francisco. Our frequent trips to Napa turned us into wine lovers. I used to keep them in a glass jug on the counter as decoration. Then that jug turned into 2 and well, then we just looked like alcoholics. So I put them away. Really, its been like 5 years of collecting, so its not a ton, but it sure does look like it.

I saw these cute cork monograms on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot. 

First, I just cut a W with an exacto knife out of cardboard.

Then, I started hot gluing corks onto the cardboard. I knew this was going on top of my cabinet as decoration, so I used all the cheapo corks.

Voila!

Being stuck on the couch has made me try way too many crafty things, but I'm totally having fun. Just wait until you see Cooper's Halloween costume! Eeek!
